Skating Instead of Valentines

I think I've finished updating my fancy-schmancy new user profile. For the first time in over 2 years, my bio actually says something useful about me! I'm fairly pleased with it now. Feel free to offer an opinion if you have one.

So next week is the dreaded V-Day holiday. I've never much cared for V-Day. Who wants to celebrate a holiday which is made to make me feel like my life and/or relationship is inadequate? (This may be why I've become such a fan of Groundhog Day instead. It's just a nicer February holiday to celebrate.)

This year I will attempt to ignore it altogether, because I will be forced to be out of town for it. I will be at a skating competition in Traverse City. Coincidentally, I have a friend who lives up there. I'd wanted to get together with her, perhaps even spend the night at her place, but I was uncomfortable with asking since I knew it would be V-Day. I figured she would want to spend romantic time with her husband. As it turns out though, he will be out of town for the whole weekend! Now, not only am I not imposing, but I will be performing a service by spending time with her! My sister and I are going to stay with her most of the weekend, and she will come watch us skate. Hooray!

It will be a nice girly sort of weekend, and I think it will be good for me to be forcibly removed from the whole V-Day discomfort. The day traditionally just depresses me, so I'm glad I can't be around for it. The only bummer is that I will not be able to join my local female friends for our semi-traditional No Boys Allowed Anit-V-Day festivities. Hopefully I can get together with them either before or after instead.

Oh, and.... the Joke contest results tomorrow! This is your last chance to submit an entry and win a paid account. so go for it.
